State House Oks bill to exempt some info about wolf attacks

The state House has passed a bill that would exempt from public disclosure personal information about people who report or respond to wolf attacks in Washington state…and other supporters have cited death threats received by state employees, ranchers and others and say the measure is needed to protect those who deal with wolves. The bill would exempt from disclosure personal information of people who report wolf attacks as well as those who participate in state programs aimed at preventive measures such as range riders.
